AFSCME Florida

We are AFSCME Florida

From the break of dawn on Miami’s shores to well after the sun sets across Pensacola’s beaches, the hardworking men and women of the American Federation of State County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) make Florida happen. From Collier County to Clay County, the home of America’s first settlement in St. Augustine to mile marker zero in Key West, our members can be found providing the vital services to make the lives of citizens across the Sunshine State better through a shared commitment to public service. As Florida’s fastest growing union, we are a proud part of a national union that advocates for fairness in the workplace, excellence in public services and opportunity for all working families.

As of this writing, the next President of the United State has not been announced but we do know that more people have voted in this election than any election in US history. That's HUGE! Until EVERY VOTE is counted, this election will not be decided. Politicians can say what they want but it's the will of the voters who declare the winner. AFSCME has always stood for fairness --- in the workplace and in politics. It's "We the People" that decide what's best for our country. In the midst of this chaos, we must stay calm and continue to stand up and fight for a better future for working families.

In 2020, we're ready to elect candidates that will stand up and fight for our values, and not rig the rules for the wealthy or sit idly buy as big corporations buy influence. Help make it happen!

AFSCME Florida and AFSCME locals across South Florida are partnering with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the South Florida AFL-CIO and the Workers Rise for Climate Justice Coalition to develop campaigns aiming to protect and improve jobs, livelihoods, and communities.
